Where Experience Leads the Way

I loved working as a program manager and consultant for the United Nations and Non-Governmental Organizations. Contributing to a better world! This kept me going for some 25 years! However, I still kept feeling unfulfilled, exhausted and frustrated with their results. I looked for change - every day - but in the wrong places. I moved countries, and changed jobs, every time looking to contribute to something new, looking for ways to feel like I was significant, like I mattered, like there was purpose in who I was.

It literally took me surviving a terrorist attack, an armed robbery on my house, and overcoming Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, to understand what that purpose was. Only when I started to work on what was within me - rather than changing what was external, did I start to see a profound shift. And now I have evolved into an effective development consultant, and career, life and mental health coach using highly effective coaching tools and techniques to bring out the best in you, your team and your organization!
